Chai with CEO: Satish Kanwar


On Wednesday, October 24th 2012, the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce – Young Professionals Committee (ICCC-YP) kicked off its 'Chai with CEO' series at the The Host Indian Cuisine restaurant in the heart of Toronto’s Yorkville district.

ICCC-YP was thrilled to host Satish Kanwar, one of the founders of Jet Cooper, an up-and-coming user design experience agency that specializes in creating spiffy applications for the web, mobile, and tablet environments.

Satish is an active member of the technology, design and the start-up community, and he is the Co-Organizer of Lean Coffee Toronto –a peer group of over 800 entrepreneurs –that provides a platform for discussing lean start-up methodologies.

But that’s not all, Satish also manages to serve as an Advisor (and previous Co-Chair) to TEDxToronto, the leading ideas conference for the City’s foremost thought leaders.

Satish was introduced to the audience by Heena Sethi, the Event Planning Coordinator with ICCC-YP, who recognized his achievements in the most personal and humorous manner.

Oeishi Bhattacharjee, one of the Co-Chairs of the ICCC-YP Committee and MC for the evening, said that the main objective of this event was to highlight the emerging entrepreneurs and leaders of the Indo-Canada community and to provide inspiration to like-minded young professionals.

She also remarked at the auspiciousness of the Chai with CEO event coinciding with Dussehra.

'Chai with CEO' is a series that ICCC-YP hosts regularly, and it features a lineup of inspiring, unforgettable business leaders.

Through this series, members get a chance to participate in various discussions as well as network with business leaders and other young professionals in the Toronto area.

Naval Bajaj, President, ICCC, also spoke at the event. He highlighted the prominence of ICCC in Indo-Canada bilateral relations and commented on the critical role the organization is playing in facilitating the Free Trade agreement between Canada and India in the early part of 2013.

He encouraged entrepreneurs and business owners alike to be optimistic about the global opportunities that would come their way, as a result of this positive economic development between the two countries.

ICCC-YP focuses on members between 21-35 years of age and provides them with a forum to get involved with ICCC in their early years.

The committee also provides members with a forum to develop and refine their professional skills through events that highlight leadership, entrepreneurship, and soft skills through networking with fellow members.
